Season 7 Episode 20

The One with Ross and Monica's Cousin

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Apr 19, 2001 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Continuity: Monica asks Phoebe to help her make up the guest room for cousin Cassie. There are two problems with that. For one, we know that Monica's guest room is always "made up". Secondly, Monica would never allow Phoebe to help with such a sacred task.

    • Goof: When Monica takes the sheets out of the basket and the camera cuts to Ross, a thick stack of papers can be seen in between the sheets.

    • Goof: In the beginning of the episode when Monica is folding laundry and talking to Phoebe about the wedding, a boom mic is visible at the top left of the screen for a few seconds.

    • Goof: In the beginning of this episode, Monica asked Phoebe to help her make up the guest room for her cousin, Cassie, who was coming to visit for a few days. It seems odd that Phoebe and Rachel did not invite Cassie to Monica's bridal shower, since they knew she was in town to visit Monica.

    • Continuity: In this episode Rachel is surprised to learn that she has to throw Monica a bridal shower. But a few episodes earlier in "The One With The Nap Partners", she specifically mentions that Phoebe will have to throw her a shower if she was her Maid of Honor.

    • Goof: When Cassie is showing Ross her freckles on her left shoulder in the next shot Ross is looking at her right shoulder but Cassie is not showing him anymore. Her hands are by her side.

    • Continuity: When Monica knocks on Phoebe's apartment door the number is 16. In "The One with Joey's New Brain" when the old guy came to pick up his cell phone, her apartment number was 14.

  • Quotes

    • Joey: (worrying about his nude scene in the movie) My grandmother's going to see this!
      Phoebe: Grandma's gonna have to get in line!

    • Monica: Chandler and I have this pact not to have sex until after the wedding.
      Ross: A no-sex pact, huh? I actually have one of those going on with every woman in America.

    • Rachel: Hey Pheebs, can I talk to you over here for a second?
      Phoebe: Yeah!
      Monica: Subtle, guys!
      Phoebe: What?
      Monica: I know you're planning my surprise bridal shower.
      Rachel: (laughs) Well okay, well don't ruin it! Just play along at least!
      Monica: Okay. Sorry. (she goes into the guest bedroom.)
      Rachel: (to Phoebe) Oh, my God! We have to throw her a shower?

    • Phoebe: Well, when can we have this shower?
      Rachel: She has got so much going on, we have only two options. We have Friday...
      Phoebe: Well that's only two days away. What is the other option?
      Rachel: Yesterday!
      Phoebe: Well if we make it yesterday, woo-hoo! We're done!

    • Monica: So Joey, what did you decide to do about the movie?
      Joey: I don't know! But it's not like it's porn, this is a serious, legitimate movie! Y'know? And the nudity is really important to the story.
      Monica: That's what you say about porn!

    • Woman: So, what time is Monica supposed to get here?
      Phoebe and Rachel: (to each other) I don't know.
      Rachel: (to the woman) Excuse us for a minute.
      (Phoebe and Rachel go into the kitchen.)
      Rachel: (to Phoebe) You didn't tell her to come?
      Phoebe: You were supposed to tell her!
      Rachel: No I wasn't! You were supposed to tell her to come, and I was supposed to bring the cake!
      Phoebe: Fine, I'll go call her.
      Rachel: Yes! And please tell her to bring a cake!

    • Cassie: Oh, my God! You do a great Chandler!
      Ross: Uh huh. Yeah, well, I have a knack for impressions.
      Cassie: Well, maybe once we get reacquainted, you could do me!
      Ross: Yeah... No!

    • Ross: And I'll always remember that summer because that's when I realized that we are related.
      Cassie: It took you that long to figure it out, huh?
      Ross: I'm a little slow. (to himself) Just as our children would be.

    • Cassie: (after Ross tries to hit on her) What the hell are you doing?
      Ross: (thinking) Say something clever. Okay, doesn't have to be clever. Just has to be words. Say some words. Any words will do. Oh, my God, this is the longest that anyone has not talked ever! There is nothing you could say to make this worse so just say something! (to Cassie) I haven't had sex in a very long time... (thinking) Yeah, you really shouldn't have said anything.

    • Cassie: (about Phoebe staring) What?
      Phoebe: (thinking) Say something! Say anything! Ask her out, she's not your cousin.
